'Mom' Sold Into Syndication in 92 Percent of the Country
CBS sitcom Mom is headed into syndication.
In its fourth season on the air, the comedy starring Allison Janney and Anna Faris has sold in 92 percent of the country. From Warner Bros. Television, the Chuck Lorre-created series will make its off-network debut on local broadcast stations fall 2017.
In addition to a major launch with Tribune stations, the show will appear on stations from Nexstar, Media General, TEGNA, Meredith, Hearst, Raycom, CBS, Sunbeam Television Corp., Northwest, Weigel, Scripps, Marshall, Cowles, Bonten, News Press, Entravision, Bahakel, Quincy, Grey Television and Mission. The series was sold on a cash-plus-barter basis.
“Stations across the country moved quickly to secure the off-net rights to Mom," Ken Werner, president of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, said Wednesday in a statement. "In two short months we have reached 92% clearance. Stations responded with enthusiasm to Chuck Lorre’s track record of success, the lack of multicam sitcoms in the pipeline and the quality of this proven performer in first-run and repeats.”
